The "do they mean us?" thread pt 2

Recommended Posts

To be fair to Spurs fans, imagine if your club constantly let you down and made you a laughing stock amongst friends and family. It'd make even the best of us bitter and twisted

Imagine it?  We had to live through that whole period from Taylor replacing O'Neill until Pearson took over where we went through something like 12 managers over 8 seasons and writing that I'm amazed it was only 8 seasons because the constant misery made it feel so much longer and I guess I see your point now.

On the live feed;

Aleksander: I'm a Danish Man United fan watching the Leicester game on tv in my country because our broadcaster prefer this game over United-Villa. Probably the biggest indicator of how far we've fallen that I've seen this season.

Taylor gave me false hope. We were top 6 and in the 1/4 final of the FA cup at one point. I seem to remember. (or is just fantasy - caught in a land slide - no escape from the reality that we are 2nd in the league -get in - best Leicester ever)

I'm not saying people should be respectful and fair, just we can't really complain if another team isn't particularly nice about us when we have 30 posts a time mocking them for giving away a throw-in or something like that.

 

We're all bitter in some way.

I would never complain about spurs having a go at us i love it , we are the itch they can't scratch,  i get more annoyed/ baffled by people on here saying they are not are rivals and dont care about us........really.!

Love the mentality in that. Picks up on three of our 4 non wins as evidence they'll catch us, but conveniently forgets they've lost to Newcastle, Brighton, Liverpool and ourselves, draw with Sheff Utd, Watford (****ing Watford lol), Everton, Arsenal and Man City.

When you prefer moneybags Man City to win the league over us, you know we've arrived in the big time. Pretty funny projection by Spurs fans.

 

"I hate Leicester as much as I hate Liverpool. Fair play to them to win a league title in recent times. But their fans are so entitled to be in the elite, which they really are not, I just cannot stand them. They will not be keeping quiet this season.

Always prefer Man City to win every league title if it cannot be us than any of the other teams"

The second half is silly hyperbole, he knows that as he's writing it, he's going overboard for emphasis, I do it all the time. He's not wrong at his core though, we did lose feebly at OT and we did offer sod all at Anfield. 

 

As for the first bit, he's even more right. Every point we drop is massive from now on if winning the league is the target. 8 is a lot, we've got to go to Man City soon, it could be 11 before we even play them. 

 

I'm thrilled we are where we are, it's great, we're there on merit too. And why not dream of a title race, it all adds to the fun. But unless they collapse drastically, they aren't getting caught. They're a runaway train this season, like it or not this is finally Liverpool's year.

And what makes Tottenham be in the 'elite' anyway? Not seen them win a Premier League title?

2 League Cups in 20 years. They've had a couple of good years in the CL but never in a million years are they a supposed "elite" club.

To be called entitled by the most entitled fans in football, pure comedy gold at least we have a title win in living memory and not grainy footage in black and white.

Drastic collapses are part of their DNA. 

 

How many points did they relinquish last season???

When fans of the big three clubs ( i've decided to change it from the big 6 as i feel man u, liverpool and arsenal are historically the top sides and man city chelsea and spurs are short term new money clubs) resort to knocking clubs like ours, we must be doing something right and they're getting twitchy.

I do believe we used to have high expectations based on the O'Neill years but actually, what has made this season and the title win better is that we don't expect to be there and are enjoying it as it goes along.

 

Yes you'll get some mouthy twats gobbing off but most of us just want us to play entertaining football, show ambition and try and compete at the top. We aren't entitled in the same way the top teams are.

Liverpool need to take Leicester title challenge as seriously as Man City's
Three reasons why the Foxes are serious contenders to the Reds at the top of the Premier League


ByDan MorganStaff Writer

LIVERPOOL FC NEWS


Leicester City will not go away.

The Foxes are keeping Liverpool modest in their quest for a long awaited Premier League title following their last second winner against Everton on Sunday, once again reducing the Reds lead to eight points.

Many remain unfazed by the challenge of the current second place team, taking their lead from the amount of points Jürgen Klopp's men are ahead of Manchester City instead.

Yet Leicester are not a team Liverpool should take lightly, and there are three key reasons why:

 

The manager
Liverpool know Brendan Rodgers all too well. Astonishingly, he is still not rated highly by some of the watching football brief, but he is certainly proving any remaining doubters wrong this season.

It is easy to forget that Rodgers has not only encountered a title-challenge at Liverpool, he has won titles with Celtic. The relevance of those titles shouldn't be lessened, he has gone through the process, as well as facing heartbreak in 2013/14 with Liverpool.

Rodgers is clearly skilled in riding the waves of momentum when his team gets in its stride. Liverpool of all clubs should know just what that can potentially manifest into.


The belief
The celebrations at the end of yesterday's stoppage-time winner against Everton were more than a buzz at scoring a late goal, they were a sign of the belief in the Leicester camp.

Quietly, they will be aware they are pulling away from the rest of the chasing pack, and while Liverpool keep winning, there will remain a belief that eight points is manageable.

Whether they can maintain it, if they have to, remains to be seen, but the fixtures seem to keep being kind to them. And with no European football, they can give all their attention to their efforts to once again challenge for the title.


They've done it before
The most hoodwinking, easily forgettable fact about English football in recent times is that Leicester City actually won the Premier League in 2015.

Forgetting the points tally, there are players in that squad who played in pressure-cooker, must win games which they come through to lift the title. Many of those players remain, none more so than Jamie Vardy, who's form often correlates with his teams' fortunes.

Liverpool have also benefited from their domestic and Champions League exploits from recent times, it should not then be lost the importance of it the more Leicester City prove themselves as a genuine threat to the Reds' hopes.
